Panel Discussion: More than Lip Service – A Client-Driven Diversity Program Giving Law Firm Attorneys the Inside Track
Moderator: Emily Harris – Corr Cronin
Historically, the traditional law firm structure has been prone to inherent institutional bias, unwittingly creating barriers for diverse attorneys to be elevated to leadership roles within firms and with clients.  Lumen Technologies witnessed the impact this had on its own legal representation, including having judges call out legal teams for their lack of diversity, and therefore launched its own innovative program to give diverse attorneys a pathway to power in firms and the courtroom.  This panel includes three Trial Network firms that have committed to championing Lumen’s diversity program.  Participants discuss the development of this program, its real-world applications, and its potential to be a model for other companies and law firms.
